A legacy for Emily Jones, to help others

Our daughter Emily Grace Jones died on 22nd March 2020, having been attacked by a stranger in the park, whilst playing on her scooter.

Emily was only 7 years old. Emily was such a happy, bubbly, beautiful and intelligent girl.  An absolute joy to spend time with. 

As a family, we do not want Emily’s name to be in vain. Emily was fortunate, in that she had the support and love of family and friends during her life. Emily was extremely sporty and adventurous, with so much energy. She packed so much into her short life. Emily loved to play tennis, she had swimming lessons, learned to horse ride. Nothing fazed Emily at all, and as such she looked forward to visiting the climbing walls in Keswick and loved hiking. 

Not all children have the support Emily enjoyed, or the opportunities she had. Emily would have loved to help others and Bolton Lads and Girls Club provide the perfect opportunity to help children achieve their goals and provide much needed support.
